Rob Lowe DirecTV Characters and their Pro Athlete Counterpart

Not since the Napa Know How commercial have we been hit with a tv commercial with greater volume then a J.R. Smith stat sheet. Love it or hate it, you knew it subconsciously like it was Jerome Bettis being from Detroit. This year is no exception as DirectTV has blasted us with a series of Rob Lowe and his awkward counterpart spots. Since we are going to see this commercial until...

2015 NBA All-Star Weekend Two on Two Contest

The NBA needs to take a page from the NHL and make their NBA All-Star weekend more fan friendly and interesting. I dug watching goalies trying to score full length ice goals and Shea Weber shooing the puck 108.5 mph. It’s progressive and shows the league is trying to do things in the interest of the fans. The NBA Slam Dunk contest for years has been a disgrace to Michael Jordan...

Deflategate: Why It’s Fun To Hate The Patriots

The New England Patriots deflated 11 of 12 game balls and now Deflategate is a thing. This story is less about the act of deflating footballs and the effect it has on the outcome of the game and more about the Patriots getting caught cheating once again. That storyline is gonna get talked about ad nauseam so let’s not go there. Instead let’s talk about what’s really at core...

Tim Tebow Jerseys The New John 3:16 Sign?

The custom jerseys trend is hotter than Kate Upton and absolutely nothing is off limits. In the last month we’ve seen the following custom jerseys: Santa Claus, Man Juice, Lil Wayne, Jameis Winston Buccaneers, and Marcus Mariota Titans. Despite the absurdity of those jerseys none of them compare to the two custom Tim Tebow jerseys that were spotted. I can only hope that this...

Bacon Sports Trivia: Miscellaneous Sports Knowledge

For this week’s sports trivia post, I’ve decided to mix it up, literally. There is a sports smorgasbord with everything from the NBA to College Football. See how your comprehensive sports knowledge measures up… 1. What two pass-happy QBs have thrown for more than 5 TDs in a game the most number of times with 9? 2. Who was the last NFL RB to have over 1,000 yards rushing and...

5 Worst Dressed Post-Game Outfits

Remember that time Dennis Rodman wore a wedding dress to promote his book? Unfortunately, so does the rest of America, and our collective eyes are still burning. While Rodman’s heinous dress might go down as the worst all-time athlete garb, there are some others in the game right now who could use a fashion consultant, too. Here are the top 5 worst dressed post-game outfits of...

Knicks Fan: Why Can’t Team Be More Like The Jets

Last night the New York Knicks lost their franchise record 16th consecutive game and fans in New York are asking why the team can’t be more like the Jets. “The Jets finished the season on a one game win streak. That’s something the Knicks haven’t done in over a month,” said Knicks fan Bernard Coleman. “I can only hope the Knicks get hot and somehow manage to finish...

Hidden Bacon, Sports & Beer Celebration Dance Party Video

We are rolling out a digital marketing and content creation part of our company and I started working on putting together a compilation video of the things we’ve done to show how we get down. While going through this endless vault of footage I came across a video titled Dance Party. Having no clue where or when this was from I clicked on it and was pleasantly surprised to see...

Ezekiel Elliott Channels His Inner Al Bundy

Touchdown Tommy Vardell, Corey Schlesinger, and Al Bundy. What is great fullbacks? Correct! What we have here, spotted at the college football National Championship game, is an Al Bundy Polk High custom jersey. I guess it’s appropriate that these guys are rocking an Al Bundy jersey considering he once scored four touchdowns in the High School City Championship. Maybe they were...

Terribly Awesome Basketball Card: Fennis Dembo

Fennis Dembo has one of the all-time best basketball names. Fennis and his twin sister Fenise were the 11th and 12th children in the Dembo family. Their sister Zona suggested the names in hopes they would be the last children in the family. The names are based off of “finis” which is the French word for “finish.” Considering they already had a child named Zona, it is clear...

Andy Dalton Big Fan of Ohio State’s 4 Turnover Blueprint

On the heels of Ohio State’s impressive four turnover, 42-20 beating of the Oregon Ducks in the National Championship game, Andy Dalton likes the new blueprint for what it takes to win a big game. “All you’ve gotta do is turn the ball over four times and you’ll win. My problem has been that I haven’t been turning the ball over enough in the playoffs.” In his four NFL...

This Jersey Is Worse Than Peyton Manning in the Playoffs

The “who’s better: Peyton Manning or Tom Brady” narrative is running on fumes, and quite frankly I think it was over when Peyton Manning and the Broncos got smoked in the Super Bowl last year. I’ve always been in the camp of Tom Brady having more Super Bowl victories being the end all be all when comparing the two. There are tons of ways to evaluate a quarterback but at...

All Turbin Errrthang

There aren’t too many fans rocking a Robert Turbin Seahawks jersey for obvious reasons. Robert Turbin is not in the top 15 of Seahawks players and doesn’t cause earthquakes when he runs the ball like Beastmode. If you are going to rock a Robert Turbin jersey then doing so while also rocking a turban is how to do it. This guy gets an A+ for creativity and turning an average...

Johnny and Jameis: A Match Made in Heaven

I was visited in my dreams last night by the ghost of football future. That ghost brought with him some ugly news. In light of Famous Jameis Winston’s recent decision to go pro and declare for the 2015 draft, the ghost informed me that a familiar foe would be rolling the dice on Florida State’s polarizing QB. That familiar foe is the Cleveland Browns. Sure, given the recent...

5 Things That Kate Upton And Her Boobs Could Not Sell You

Kate Upton and boobs. Two things the creators of the game Game of War think can help sell more of their game to teenagers and dudes. These commercials, which seems to appear on an endless loop on every sports channel I watch, have a simple formula: show Kate Upton, show Kate Upton’s boobs. In terms of the dialogue in the commercials it’s 50/50 on if you should listen or not...

Perfect Darts Game Sends Crowd Into Frenzy

At the Bacon Skybox we are often working on our darts game. If I’m lucky I can hit two 20’s out of three throws and maybe once every few games I’ll get a triple 20. I’m above average/good at darts and do my best work while holding a beer. On the other end of the spectrum is this dude Adrian Lewis who is a professional darts player (talk about a great life choice). At...

Most Irresistible Jersey For Women Ever

Rumor has it the way to a woman’s heart is with diamonds. I disagree. The real way to a woman’s heart is by wearing a custom Capitals jersey that says Man Juice on the back. What woman could resist a man that makes his own juice? None.

2014 NFL Gambling Recap: This is How I Hit 55% ATS on the Year

Oh what a wonderful 2014 NFL gambling regular season it was for Bobby Vegas. For the first time ever G-Hunt and I picked every NFL game against the spread to see how we stacked up. We were not only picking against each other, but also against the line of profitability, 52.4% (when betting you have to include the juice, thus why you have to pick better than 50% to be in the green...

With the holiday tournaments wrapping up, the conference hoops season is about underway. In honor of that, this week’s Bacon Sports Trivia is focusing on college basketball.

RAPLETE REVIEW: INSIDE THE NBA FREESTYLE

As the Bacon Sports resident rap guru, I feel obligated to weigh in on the Inside the NBA rap cypher that went down two weeks ago. Special guest Nicki Minaj and the crew of commentators passed the mic trading freestyles. Here is a break down of the good, the bad, and the atrocious from what hopefully becomes a recurring segment. And for the record, I’d take Bacon Sports freestyle...

SEC Better At Unintentional Jerseys Humor Too

SEC football is better at everything including unintentional jersey humor. On it’s own “Fish Fry” spelled out in jerseys is good, but if that guy in the middle could have just added an R to his name we’d be looking at “Fish Brunch Fry.” I’m all about fish fry’s and brunch so combining the two sounds like a great idea. Just don’t invite this Wisconsin man who recently...

Lil Wayne is currently beefing with Cash Money over his latest album, Tha Carter V, not being released yet and this Capitals fan wants to let everyone know that he’s down with Lil Tunechi by rocking his custom jersey. Apparently Birdman don’t fly in any weather. We’ve seen custom jersey shout out’s to Nintendo 64 and Santa Claus but never a rapper. I can only hope this...
